(Redirected from Cutoff (disambiguation))

Cutoff or cut off or cut-off may refer to:

## Science and technology

• Cutoff (physics), a threshold value for a quantity
• Cutoff (reference value), a one-sided reference range
• Cutoff (steam engine), the point in the piston stroke at which the inlet valve is closed
• Cutoff (metalworking), a piercing operation used to cut a workpiece from the stock
• Cutoff grade, in mining, the level of mineral in an ore below which it is not economically feasible to mine it
• Cutoff frequency, in telecommunications and digital signal processing
• Cut-off (electronics), when in a MOSFET device the gate to source control voltage is less than a threshold value denoted by $V_{T}$ or $V_{Th}$: then the channel is said to be cut-off, imposing the flow of a very low drain-to-source current
• Meander cutoff, a course change in a meadering river
• Fuse (electrical), a type of overcurrent protection device
• UV Cutoff (chemistry), the wavelength at which the solvent absorbance in a 1 cm path length cell is equal to 1 AU (absorbance unit) using water in the reference cell.

## Clothing and fashion

• Kutte, a usually sleeveless decorated jacket
• Crop top, a shirt that exposes the midriff
• Cut-off shorts, long pants that have been cut at the knee level (usually without a hem) to create shorts
